About That NBC News Drama …

The hiring and firing of Ronna McDaniel at NBC News brought up mixed feelings for the staffers at The Dispatch. Sarah, Jonah, Steve, and David (French!) open up about their own complicated relationships with mainstream media, the problems with hiring partisans into newsrooms, and whether McDaniel is a good avatar for any of these questions.

The Agenda:
—Roles of ideological purity in media
—The crew’s experiences at their respective news outlets
Steve’s behind-the-scenes insight into McDaniel’s Meet the Press interview
—The changing definition of RINO
—The lack of truthfulness in news outlets
Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s ballot-access dilemma
